Shorting Servotronics shares

There are currently 675 Servotronics shares held short by investors – that's known as Servotronics's "short interest". This figure is 19.9% up from 563 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Servotronics shares can be evaluated.

Servotronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Servotronics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Servotronics shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Servotronics shares traded daily (recently around 794.11764705882). Servotronics's SIR currently stands at 0.85. In other words for every 100,000 Servotronics shares traded daily on the market, roughly 850 shares are currently held short.

However Servotronics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Servotronics shares, or, against the total number of tradable Servotronics shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Servotronics's short interest could be expressed as 0% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Servotronics shares in existence, roughly 0 shares are currently held short) or 0.0007% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Servotronics shares, roughly 1 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Servotronics.

Servotronics share dividends

We're not expecting Servotronics to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Servotronics's shares ever split?

Servotronics's shares were split on a 108:100 basis on 29 May 1996. So if you had owned 100 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 108 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Servotronics shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 7.4% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Servotronics shares which in turn could have impacted Servotronics's share price.

Servotronics share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Servotronics's shares have ranged in value from as little as $5.4 up to $10.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

SVT.US volatility(beta: 1.04)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE MKT average) beta is 1, while Servotronics's is 1.0417. This would suggest that Servotronics's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
